EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier seemingly was at Lansdowne Road this afternoon.

Had the French management known this surely they could have got him down at half time to negotiate with the home team who had owned the ball and the territory in that first half.

"They had 90 per cent of the ball," the cheerless coach Jacques Brunel observed afterwards. "They wouldn't allow us initiate anything. We finished the game well but we had spent too much time defending."
